Abstract: 
The turn of the 21st Century sees renewed emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics). Building a Smart Nation is now a buzzword for many
developed countries. Compelled by the advancement of information and communication
technology, the ability to code in a programming language is a skill that is now, more
than ever, urgently called for. In addition, it is widely believed that coding enhances
problem solving abilities. In this paper, by underscoring the disciplinarity of coding,
we construct a curricular framework for inculcating computational thinking in authentic
classroom situations. Our proposition that computational thinking can only be imparted
through doing, and this is supported by episodes of a graduate course, taught by the
second author, in which graduate students develop coding competencies in vba.
